I actually met Kase’s mom for the first time at the Monterey Birth Fair. It’s a great event form expecting moms to meet doulas, midwives, and other birth professionals. My favorite thing about the event is seeing all the different things I didn’t even know existed! Did you know hypnobirth was a thing? Or even the difference between a doula and a midwife? I didn’t before I went to one of these events! I love knowing all the different options out there and being able to ask questions in person. Anyway, I was so excited when she contacted me to do a maternity and newborn session for their little growing family. You can see their amazing field maternity session here.
This newborn session was amazing. We did a couple cool requests. Mom definitely wanted photos of her baby boy with dad in his CHP uniform, we even got the big fur baby in on some! She had a couple cute hats that were gifts, and she wanted a photo of her laying down from above. That was one of my favorites, especially with her gorgeous hair!
